100+ MPG Sports Car: Caterham Seven Roadsport
Science Worlds reports that Britain will see the launch of a new car company next week that aims to be the most sustainable in Europe. Axon Automotive, based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, will make their debut at the Sexy Green Car Show show at the Eden Project in Cornwall. The Axon Eco-M edition is based on a Caterham 7 Classic and uses the standard 1.4 liter engine. However, to improve its aerodynamics and reduce its weight Axon have done away with the roof, windscreen and more, and brought in new lightweight components made from recycled carbon fiber. The technique for recycling carbon fire, previously thought to be impossible, has been developed by British company Milled Carbon.
